2020 Lagos Marathon Venue Invaded by angry mob of Okada Ban Protesters.

An angry mob of placard-carrying protesters stormed the Lagos Antlantic Finish Line venue of the 2020 Lagos Marathon in protest of the untold hardship which the recently imposed statewide ban is having on them. The ban which affected motorcycles(okadas) and Tricycles(Keke Napep/Marwa) has created serious transportation problems in most of the affected areas. It is in view of this that the protesters decided to air their grievances through their protests and placards which said it all. A protester who agreed to speak on the condition of anonymity said ‘How can government just suddenly decide to ban staple means of transportation without any ready alternatives? Who in the world does that? Lagos is one of the fastest growing megapolis in the world and even as it is, the existing transportation structure is not even sufficiently catering to the people’s needs, yet a ban magically materializes? Well, I want to appeal to Governor Sanwoolu’s cabinet to please reverse the anti-masses decision with immediate effect and automatic alacrity.’ However, it remains to be seen whether the ban will be lifted or not.
